I realize I have not updated the blogging world in a while. Rest assured, we are still here! :) Owen is doing wonderful. He is growing and developing faster than ever before. Recently he has started babbling so our house is now full of ga-gas, mamas, dadas, and goo-goos. And I love it. His little voice just melts my heart! He began rolling (finally!) a few weeks ago. He can only roll from belly to back, but we are SO proud of him! He began his therapy at about 4 months old and this is a goal we have been working toward the entire time. When he learned to sit up it became even more difficult to squeeze in tummy time throughout the day. But he finally mustered up the muscles and strength to push over! Yay Owen!
Owen is a busy bee. Although he can't crawl yet (he is getting into the crawling position on his on now!) he plays, and plays and plays! He is so interested in his toys (and the TV) and plays his little heart out. In fact, as Daddy and I were doing some Christmas shopping last weekend Owen fell in love with a little dog that sings and dances. We (of course) bought if for him, intending for it to be a Christmas gift. Well......
I'll leave you with a few new pictures of our growing boy. Be sure to take a look at his growing hair! It's definitely taken off and I have a feeling it's going to have some of Mommy's waves and curls!
|Learning to clap. Of course it's for the pretty lady singing on TV....never when Mommy requests!|
|Daddy was finally able to find some free time and put Owen's new truck together. He was one cool dude. :)|
|We visited an orchard and Owen got his first experience with pumpkins.|
|He as a sleepy boy by the end of our day at Boyd Orchard!|
|Trying to escape and show off how well he is doing in PT. :)|
|Just another day playing with Mommy. :)|
|Mommy's heart is breaking as the "baby look" fades into a handsome "big boy" look!|
There are many blessings we will never receive until we are ready to pay the price of pain, for the path of suffering is the only way to reach them.
